Keeping busy

We've spent the last few Sundays visiting churches and making new contacts .  Andrew was asked to give his testimony one Sunday morning! So, God is opening doors for us to share our heart for Togo, even when we're not in a scheduled meeting!

Andrew requested to go to part-time work about a month ago.  Costco is still working to find a replacement for him so he can switch to another department.  Please pray that the transition will go smoothly!  We know God will work it out in His timing.

The Story of His Glory!

This past week has been one of great encouragement for us. We participated in the missionsconference at Mile Straight Baptist Church, Soddy Daisy, TN. Since we live in Chattanooga we got to spend the nights in our own beds!

On Sunday Andrew and I talked about Togo in Kidzworld(Sunday School), and we were able to give our testimonies to the entire church family during the evening service. On Tuesday night we showed our ministry presentation video and Andrew talked some more about our passion for Togo. I was able to just pour my heart out at the ladies' luncheon.

This church family just made us feel soooo welcome. One of the ladies of the church treated all the missionary wives to pedicures! Another lady gave us all haircuts- Cyrus' first! I was sure to save a clip of his hair for the scrapbook I'll make 10(?) years from now.


It's was hard for me to believe that God could make me feel any more excited about Togo and encouraged by other believers, but He did!

Onward, Upward, Always- the Ascent

This past week we've been overwhelmed by the generosity and hospitality shown to us by Heritage Baptist Church in Prattville, AL. Not only were we fed really, really well, but they also provided excellent childcare whenever we needed it. They took all of the missionaries to a nice restaurant for lunch on Monday.
On the last evening they had us stand on the platform while they read a long list of things they were providing for us as a church. We're still recovering from the shock of being so richly blessed, exceedingly, abundantly, above what we could ask or think!
The theme for the conference was on God's Faithfulness. It was wonderful to leave with a renewed assurance that God will bring in our support according to His perfect timing. He is faithful!
